Thailand Score First World Cup Goal And Management Can't Hold Back Their Tears Of Joy

Thailand's manager and backroom staff were in tears after the women's team scored for the first time in the World Cup.

Kanjana Sungngoen darted into the box and fired past Sweden's Hedvig Lindahl from a tight angle in extra-time.

And while Thailand were losing 4-0 at the time that the 32-year-old forward scored, the management and fans were overwhelmed by the moment.

Fans couldn't help but feel emotional by the moment and shared their happiness on social media.

Thailand went on to lose the match 5-1, with Elin Rubensson scoring from the spot kick in injury time.

But the Thailand fans needed something to celebrate after they were thumped 13-0 by the USA.

Thailand remain at the bottom of Group F, while Sweden have made it two in two and climbed above the US.

However, the defending champions are in action today when they play against Chile.

Will the US retain the Women's World Cup?

Let us know in the comments.
